Open-source technology for human powered restoration

Greenstand is building a scalable open-source treetracking software using mobile technology that answers who (individual or organization) has planted what specific tree where, and how long that tree survives for. The system is desiggned to attach information to a digital "proof of work" creating a chain of custody allowing to attach information on monetary transactions and other added values to the initial impact token. 

We build custom-designed mobile and cloud-based applications to harvest tree growth data and support planters in the initial tagging and tracking of large numbers of trees. The system is streamlined to make it extremely simple for foresters/growers to take more than a thousand geo-tagged images of trees in one day. The data is compressed in the mobile application and sent to a specifically designed cloud platform where it is processed, analyzed for validity, stored and displayed. 

Each tree is evaluated using a custom administration panel. These trees can then be turned into a digital Impact Token that is linked to a digital wallet. Our Impact Wallets are tied to web links that allow individual investors to monitor, own, trade and share their ecological and social impact that they sponsored. Using this framework, organizations and individual users are able to verify their trees and advertise their impact. This lays a framework for the long-term evaluation of each individual tree as an environmental asset.
